Back O Loch Halt

Location type

Station


Name and dates

Back O Loch Halt (1926-1964)

Opened on the Campsie Branch (Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway).


Description

This halt was built by the London and North Eastern Railway to improve passenger facilities in the area. The station consisted of two wooden platforms.

This station was still visible. The footpaths down from a road over-bridge were still obvious although the platforms are no more. The location was becoming choked with trees.

The location has been obliterated by road development.
From this point to where the solum of the line passes under the Forth and Clyde Canal the line has been landscaped and encroached upon by roads.
